7 Ways to Decorate with Red

2 Comments

Hey Remodelaholics!  It’s Karah here again with my seasonal update for you for February.  You can check out the winter wreath we made in January here.

I hope the new year has been treating you sell so far, we’ve been plugging away at our home renovation and I’ve been playing around with all different arrangements of decor.  Do you do that?  Shift things here and move them there until they just feel right to you?  Now, I don’t know about you but I’m not really much of a Valentine’s Day decorator.  But I do think it’s fun to incorporate a few extra pops of red around the house this time of year.  More a subtle ode to the holiday of love than any in your face cupid crafts.  Not that there’s anything wrong with a good ol’ cupid craft every now and again.  :)

But with a few simple alterations here are 7 ways to decorate with red that can easily be switched out whenever the urge hits you.  We’re not talking painted walls here.  :)

7 Ways to Decorate With Red

Candles – Mine are actually remnants of my Christmas decor.  Before you get rid of everything after the big end of the year celebrations, take a look around, what little bits of red would be fun to keep out just a little longer?

Books – I have been using my books as an eclectic way to hold our cable and Apple tv box right up under our tv (no cords!).  But look what happens when all of the red ones find their way together? Thrift shops and yard sales are a great place to find weathered old red books.

Hi Remodelaholics! My name is Karah and I write the DIY blog the space between where I chronicle our adventures to make the most of our every space. I am passionate about creating a home that we love through upcycling, repurposing and some hard core home renovations. Currently we're knee-deep in a full DIY renovation of our 1950's conch style house in Key West, FL and we're so incredibly close to decorating and accessorizing and beautifying ... you know, the fun stuff! So cheers to making the most of the space between ... you know the one, that little space between where you've been and where you're going.

    I love the touches of red especially the lampshade. My house has red accents already so it looks like I’m decorating for Valentine’s Day.
